We understand. Preparing your home to sell can seem like a huge undertaking. 

However, there are many small changes that can make a huge impact on potential buyers, increase your home's desirability, and even increase the value of your home.

Here are THREE you should do right now.

Start with First Impressions

A welcoming home makes a world of difference! A few things to consider doing to make a lasting first impression:

1. Pressure wash the exterior.

2. Touch up any paint that has weathered over time.

3. Remove overgrown plants and weeds.

4. Keep your lawn mowed (and green).

5. Add color with plants and decorative planters to add some "oomph".

6. Update your house numbers.

Kitchen + Baths

Adding new cabinetry can get expensive. Painting your cabinets, however, can make an outdated kitchen and bath look newer and cleaner.

Change drawer pulls and cabinet knobs, replace dated light fixtures, and install a stainless steel sink with a garbage disposal and pull-out spray faucet in the kitchen.

Maximize Light

Buyers value great lighting. As a matter of fact, a home with good light is one of the most requested qualities.

Remove heavy draperies from the windows, trim back bushes and trees that obstruct natural lighting, clean all windows and screens, and replace burnt out light receptacles with high quality LED bulbs that are consistent throughout your entire home.

Adding fixtures such as floor and table lamps can help add light to your home.
